  • Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs, sugar, and vegetable oil together in another bowl; stir in yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Gradually stir flour mixture into wet ingredients until just moistened; fold zucchini and pistachios into batter. Pour batter evenly into prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I made this on a whim to use up my zucchini in the fridge. This recipe is my new favourite for my B&B guests. I didn't have yogurt so substituted sour cream. It was perfect. I also drizzled a little lemon juice and icing sugar on top good with or without. Great recipe Read More

Substituted a few things to make it a bit healthier: used kefir (since dad is growing them so I had it on hand) instead of yogurt, and applesauce instead of oil. It was delicious. I love the lemon flavor as well as the pistachios. Will definitely make this again. Read More

This was so delicious and moist. I followed the recipe exactly, which is very unlike me. After the first yummy bites I decided to take my leftover lemon juice and make a glaze. It really took this recipe over the top. I brought one of the loaves in to school to share with my classmates and they gobbled it all up, even the people who were wary of zucchini in their bread.

Two word for this, "LOVE IT". Only thing that I changed was I used 1/4 c. lemon juice and the zest of 2 lemons. I love the flavor of lemon and this seemed about right Read More

Big hit at our house. When I got ready to make this all I had was vanilla Greek yogurt so I used that in place of the plain yogurt. I made this in to 5 mini loaves (6" x 3 1/2")instead of 2 full size loaves and baked it for 35 minutes. Great taste and texture. This bread rose beautifully. Read More

This bread was a nice change from the traditional zucchini bread recipes. The only change I made in the recipe was the use of lemon Greek yogurt (that was what I had on hand). Also, my bake time was considerably longer than 55 minutes. The only change I will make for the next loaves (yes, this recipe is a keeper!) is to add additional lemon zest and/or juice. I thought the lemon flavor could have been a little more pronounced. Read More

This is the best! I didn't have plain yogurt, so I used vanilla and cut the sugar to 1 Cup. The biggest problem with this bread is that I can't stop at one slice! I have to have seconds. Read More
